Foreign assisted suicide cases in Switzerland double in 4 years

ZURICH (Reuters) - The number of foreigners travelling to Switzerland to commit assisted suicide doubled over a four-year period, a study published in the Journal of Medical Ethics said on Thursday. In 2012, 172 foreigners took their lives in Switzerland, which has liberal euthanasia rules, up from 86 in 2009, with citizens from Germany and Britain making up almost two-thirds of the total, the study found. Assisted suicide has been legal in Switzerland since the 1940s, if performed by someone with no direct interest in the death #facebook #Business #Japan #Technology #Russia #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #journal

Islamic State video shows conversion of Yazidis to Islam

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Islamic State, a militant group that witnesses and officials say has executed hundreds of members of Iraq's Yazidis, has released a video that seeks to show it enlightened hundreds of members of the religious minority by converting them to Islam. The production was issued not long after the group on Tuesday released a video showing one of its black-clad fighters beheading American journalist James Foley, sparking international outrage. The Yazidis, followers of an ancient religion derived from Zoroastrianism who are part of the country's Kurdish minority, have paid the highest price for Islamic State's dramatic advance through northern Iraq. #United States #India #China #Business #Brazil #Technology #Arabic #Russia #markets #Argentina #Latin America #Entertainment
